Every SINGLE day I get MULTIPLE spam calls to my PM number. I've already blocked their numbers but they ALWAYS LEAVE A ****ING VOICEMAIL that I can't disable. Please help me disable voicemail entirely. Thank you

You can not disable voice mail but you can put an extended absense greeting.

 

This will disable the ability to leave messages and can you record a message with nothing.

 

It's the best option.

Hey @kkum,

I remember this question has come up several times in the past. The answer is no unfortunately.

 

I have used YouMail in the past to handle voicemails.  They email you or you can open the voicemails in their app.  Delete without listening from the app or email is a lot easier and you avoid the persistent voicemail notificaiton on your phone.  

You can also achieve this by enabling conditional call forwarding to your Fongo number.

Hi @mimmo

I'm trying this right now. So I'm using a greeting of straight nothing for as long as I was allowed (around 90 seconds) but I'm curious how this will prevent them from leaving messages. Since they're all bots, won't they just wait out my greeting and then leave a voicemail regardless? Thanks for helping

 

@imm1304

I will be sure to try your method next. 

Thanks for replying 

@kkum you need to select an extended absence greeting vs the regular greeting.

 

The option is in there some where.   

 

Will see if I can find instructions in the forum.

Thanks, I think I got it working now. Let's see how this works out, I'll keep you posted.

 

On some phones, you can install an app that will automatically answer the call and then just hang up on the person.  For example, in Android one such program is called No Spam No Voicemail.   The app itself is a little buggy (default settings don't work for me), but after tinkering with the settings, this app will answer a calls from specified phone numbers after one ring and then hang up on them.  If that app isn't to your liking, there are others available as well.

I will check this out if the extended voicemail doesn't work.

 

Thanks

maybe a last resort option would be to change phone numbers?

Yea I thought about that but it'll be a huge pain. But I'm at a point where if none of these other methods work I might just have to use this one.

 

Thanks
